Blessing Adeniran, the mother of late Whitney Adeniran, a 12-year-old pupil of Chrisland High School, Ikeja, Lagos, has revealed her daughter died of electrocution.
In a live video broadcast made on Wednesday night, Blessing said autopsy had been done on Whitney, and according to the report, her death was caused by injuries suffered from electrocution.
Blessing said prior to the autopsy, representatives of the school had denied knowledge of Whitney’s cause of death and claimed she was sickly.
She said she begged them to investigate as she did not want to go through the pain of having a pathologist cut open her child.
“My child was electrocuted to death,” she said before bursting into tears. “They came to my house. I said ‘Mrs Amao, I don’t know how autopsy is being done, but I have browsed it, and the image is scary.’”
Blessing went on to explain how stomach contents, blood, bone marrow, kidney parts and parts of Whitney’s brain were extracted for the autopsy, and said it was difficult for her to live through it.
“My daughter was butchered for autopsy. She was opened up. They took part of her kidney, liver, stomach contents, blood, brain, bone marrow. Omodesola was butchered just because Chrisland kept protecting their reputation,” Blessing added.

She also accused the school’s principal of using lawyers to intimidate her and attempting to bury the matter so it did not escalate.
According to FIJ, the Newspaper called Chrisland school, but the representative who answered the call was unable to speak to us at press time, as she was in transit.
She had not responded to a text message sent to her as of press time.
Whitney passed away on February 9, 2023, during the school’s inter-house sports competition held at Agege stadium in Lagos.
